Basic Rules to Interpret Roman Numerals
 When a bigger letter precedes a smaller letter, the letters are added. For example: DI, D > I, so DI = D + I = 500 + 1 = 501.
 When a smaller letter precedes a bigger letter, the letters are subtracted. For example: IX, I < X, so IX = X  I = 10  1 = 9.
 When a letter is repeated multiple times, they get added. For example: XXX = X + X + X = 10 + 10 + 10 = 30
 The same letter cannot be used more than three times in succession.
